Player News
Dodgers' Justin Turner settling into primary third-base role
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:37 am ET) Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner has started nine of his team's past 11 games at third base, but though he's settling into a primary role at the position, he said on Monday that he doesn't need the title of primary starter, the Orange County Register reports.

"I just look at our roster and how many good players we have," Turner said. "I want to play every day. But I look at the depth we have. There’s plenty of options for (manager) Donnie (Mattingly). I definitely feel I’m playing more than a quote-unquote role player. But I was playing more than I usually had when he (Juan Uribe) was here. The trade went down and nothing really changed other than I lost the best teammate on the planet."

Mattingly said he still feels he needs to monitor Turner's playing time in order to not overplay him, as too much action leads to knee and hamstring issues.

"I think (Mattingly’s attitude) is more the history of being in New York only playing 60, 70 games for a couple years," Turner said. "Maybe he just feels he needs to be cautious about going too fast from that to playing a lot. I don’t feel like that’s an issue."

Turner picked up a hit, a walk and two runs in Monday's 11-4 win over the Rockies. He has hit .298/.387/.510 with five home runs and 19 RBI in 104 at-bats.


Angels 3B David Freese homers, extend hit streak to six games
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:30 am ET) Angels third baseman David Freese homered and singled during a 7-3 win Monday against the Rays. He also had one walk and one strikeout.

Freese connected for his ninth home run when he led off the second inning with a solo shot. He has now hit safely in six straight games. He is batting .429 (9 for 21) with one home run, two doubles, two RBI, five runs and three walks during the hitting streak.


Rockies' Nolan Arenado homers in third straight game Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:29 am ET) Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado went 2 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 11-4 loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

Arenado slugged a homer to center field in the fourth inning off Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw that was measured at 431 feet, per Statcast. It was his third straight game with a home run, and he's managed to rack up six homers in his last eight games.

"He's staying behind the ball better than he did the last couple of years," manager Walt Weiss said after the game, per MLB.com. "We'd see him out on his front side a lot, and that's something that he and [hitting coach] Blake [Doyle] have really worked on and talk about consistently."

With his recent power stretch, Arenado looks well on his way to topping his career-high 18 homers from last season. He has hit .289/.330/.578 with 13 home runs and 37 RBI in 180 at-bats.


Angels OF Mike Trout parks three-run HR in win vs. Rays
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:20 am ET) Angels outfielder Mike Trout connected for a three-run homer during a 7-3 win Monday against the Rays. Trout parked his 13th home run off Alex Colome in the third inning.

Trout has hit safely in 13 of his last 14 games. He is batting .327 with a .582 slugging percentage, three home runs, five doubles, nine RBI and 11 runs in that span.


Mets' Jenrry Mejia (elbow) to begin throwing program next week
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:13 am ET) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia (elbow) will return to the United States to begin a throwing program in about 10 days, The Star-Ledger reports.

Mejia was placed on the disabled list in early April before being handed an 80-game suspension for testing positive for an anabolic steroid. Though initially the reliever was said by general manager Sandy Alderson not to be guaranteed a roster spot once his suspension was served, manager Terry Collins indicated on Monday that the team would find a spot for him in the bullpen.

Mejia had served as the team's closer before his absence, but the Mets have seen Jeurys Familia blossom in the role, racking up 15 saves in 16 opportunities while posting a 1.44 ERA and 30:6 K:BB ratio in 25 innings this season.


Dodgers' Jimmy Rollins launches sixth home run Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:07 am ET) Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins went 2 for 4 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 11-4 win over the Rockies on Monday.

Rollins was one of two Dodgers to homer in the second inning to give the team a 2-0 lead, and though the Rockies tied things up in the fourth, a six-run sixth inning helped key the win. Rollins was hitless in his previous two games before joining in on the offensive fireworks on Monday. He has hit .209/.277/.358 with six home runs, 15 RBI and five stolen bases in 187 at-bats.


Dodgers' Andre Ethier slugs seventh home run Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:01 am ET) Dodgers right fielder Andre Ethier went 2 for 5 with a triple and a solo home run in his team's 11-4 win over the Rockies on Monday.

Ethier kicked off the fireworks with a home run in the second inning, one of four homers for the Dodgers on the day. He scored a second run in the sixth inning after banging out a triple. Ethier has homered twice in his last seven games and now owns a .309/.395/.551 line with seven homers and 20 RBI in 136 at-bats.


Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier hits 10th double of season
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2:04 am ET) Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier went 2 for 3 at the plate in Monday evening's 7-3 loss to the Angels. 

One of Kiermaier's hits went for a double, his 10th of the season. It's also the second game in a row where Kiermaier has posted a double. 

It appears Kiermaier has snapped out of his mini-slump. After going four games in a row without a hit, he's posted hits in the past three. This is Kiermaier's first multi-hit game since May 17, when he had two against the Twins. 

Kiermaier now has a slash line of .233/.273/.387. 


Angels' Albert Pujols homers twice in Monday's win
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2:01 am ET) Angels first baseman Albert Pujols homered twice and went 3 for 5 to help lead the Angels to a 7-3 win over the Rays on Monday. Pujols drove in three runs and scored two.

He connected for a solo home run off Alex Colome in the fifth inning, and then parked a two-run homer off Andrew Bellatti in the eighth inning. Over his last 11 games, Pujols is 15 for 46 (.326) with two doubles, six home runs and 11 RBI.

''Albert's resume speaks for itself,'' starting pitcher Garrett Richards said. ''He's a Hall of Famer. That guy with one swing of the bat can get you right back into a game, and he showed that tonight.''


Rays' Nick Franklin hits 2-run HR in loss to Angels
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2:00 am ET) Rays infielder Nick Franklin took his third hit of the season for a home run in Monday night's 7-3 loss to the Angels. 

Franklin hit a two-run shot in the fourth inning for his first homer of the season. Franklin, appearing in just his 12th game of the year, is hitting just .091 this season. He hadn't recorded a hit since May 17.
